My insurance, after speaking with my doctor and reviewing the Heyborne study, has generously agreed to continue to cover my inpatient care. Everyone told me not to worry ....but it was too hard. But now I'm really happy - such a relief :)
The Heyborne study is like a trump card for monoamniotic/monochorionic(momo) moms. It's goal was to find the optimal care for momo patients. It compared inpatient care to outpatient care. In a nutshell, there were zero fetal deaths in the inpatient care side and 40% fetal deaths on the outpatient side. Also, the inpatient group tended to carry their babies closer to term resulting in shorter nicu stays and better overall health for the babies.
As my tummy gets bigger and bigger, I can't help but imagine what it was like back in the days when you found out you were having twins when the second baby was born. !!! People still managed to have twins, but my twins wouldn't have been ok. Even having the technology to be aware of BabyB's heart defect before birth has been a blessing.
